The TMB Bank Public Company
Limited, formerly known as Thai Military Bank Public Company Limited, changed
its name and logo as of 2005. The bank was first started only available to the military and their
families but in 1973, it was expanded to private enterprise and the general
public to become a full-fledged commercial bank.
The logo and flag were changed in 2005 as the company underwent a re-brand to focus more on its universal banking business than solely for the military. The English name "TMB Bank Public Company Limited" was adopted and the logo was changed to show TMB and their slogan "Make THE Difference" instead of the previous symbol.
The flag has this new branding in the center of a white flag, with the addition of two blue bars on the top and bottom of the flag (about 1/8th of the width of the flag). A picture of the flag is at https://www.tmbbank.com/assets/contact/img/hl-contact.jpg.

This was the website of the Thai Military Bank, which has its own flag. The same page contains an explanation of this corporate-identity symbol.
At any rate, it seems an odd bank: only for soldiers, their families and veterans, and with branches in Vientiane (Laos) and Ho Chi Minh city, ex-Saigon (Vietnam).

From the website:
TMB's corporate identity is now reflected in a new symbol redesigned and presented as Identity Flag and at the same time used as its corporate logo. The flag-like design, in white, red and blue, characterizes TMB's 3 elements of unity and strongly identifies with the country's national flag but has its own special meanings.
The blue on the top left corner of the flag signifies TMB's shareholders from which came the true basis of TMB's corporate entity.
The large strip of white background in the middle running down from top right corner to the bottom left corner represents the organization's principles of transparency, integrity, honesty and clarity.
The red section at the bottom right corner of the flag signifies the patronage of our customers-like the vital blood system that keeps a human body alive.
This new TMB's corporate symbol is now on display at every branch office. It gives the public a strong signal of TMB's commitments to the highest standards in its banking services.
